Fish on Group picture 9.2.16If you love to fish and want to join a group of like-minded sportsman join the Fish-On Club.

 

The Club holds monthly meetings the first Tuesday of each month at 7 PM at the Gulf Landings Clubhouse, 6035 Barefoot Ct., New Port Richey. Prior to the business part of the meeting, we have a fishing education segment. We usually have a guest speaker. Our guest speakers include professional fishing charter captains, professional guides, or Club members. Topics include techniques, strategies, tackle, and skills used to increase fishing knowledge. Also, at each meeting, there is a 50/50 raffle and an attendance raffle.

A newsletter and calendar are mailed to each member monthly in order to keep everyone apprised of Club information and up-coming events.

Each year the Fish-On Club hosts our Wish-To-Fish outing for abandoned, abused, neglected and underprivileged children. Our club takes approximately 30 children on a day long fishing trip aboard the charter boat, Miss Virginia. We provide breakfast, lunch, drinks, afternoon snacks, Club tee shirts and volunteers to assist the children with the fishing. The children selected come from the Joshua House and the Hope Children’s Home (group homes). We have also taken the Boys and Girls Club and active military personal returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Club promotes community involvement as a group.  We  have adopted a section of Main Street in New Port Richey and volunteers from the Club clean up once each quarter. We also assist the Local YMCA with their Kids Fishing Day and Officiate other Fishing Tournaments as needed.

The Club holds several tournaments a year with cash payouts. Usually these tournaments are for species including redfish, trout, snook, kingfish, grouper, spanish mackerel, etc. These tournaments are for members only and are funded solely by member contributions.
